Papercut Press, a small publisher based out of Brooklyn, NY, is currently seeking submissions for the first in a series of sci-fi/fantasy collections. This one is all about steampunk as a genre, check out the prompt:
Papercut Press invites authors and artists to share how they understand the world of steampunk for our upcoming science fiction and fantasy collection. Is there more to it than gears and gadgets? Is it purely industrial or can it be romantic as well? Is it magical or historical? We believe it can be any of these things, and want our collection to reflect the many faces of steampunk art and literature. So pick up your quill pens and powdered ink, enchanted typewriters or Daguerreotype cameras and tell us what you think! Please send your art, stories, poems and essays of 4000 words or less to email@example.com. Deadline for submissions is August 6.
